The New World by Carmine Starnino
Finalist for The A.M. Klein Prize for Poetry in 1997
While Carmine Starnino’s debut covers much ground—translations of Italian poets he has admired, monologues by characters in the New Testament, meditations on Caravaggio’s religious paintings—it is his examination of his immigrant family that demands the most admiration. The New World offers the reader an unforgettable glimpse of one poet’s cultural inheritance.
